ENTERTAINMENT & SPECIAL EVENTS

If you’re looking for some music to spice up your time in Westport, The Cove is the place for you to set yourself down. We bring in the best we can find and keep a healthy mix on rotation. From Blues to Jazz, Rock to Folk, Country to Bluegrass, Soul to Funk, we love it all. In the warmer months, larger performances and full band shows take place on our Lounge stage while solos, duos and small groups play to the patio crowds. When it gets cooler, all shows happen in the Lounge.

Always best to call ahead for reservations so you have a seat too! 1.888.COVE.INN

TERRY GILLESPIE TRIO Blues/Reggae/African Fusion (Ontario/Jamaica)

September 10 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm

$20

Born in Canada and raised in Michigan Terry first got introduced to the Blues in small Detroit clubs watching legends like John Lee Hooker, Buddy Guy, Muddy Waters and Howlin’ Wolf. He self-taught himself the guitar and got good enough at a young age that the Wolf once asked him to join his band! He moved to Ottawa in the late ’60’s and helped introduce the Blues to that city. He also discovered Reggae at the same time and began fusing the two into a unique sound which he maintains to this day. In the early ’70’s he formed one of Ottawa’s most popular bands of that era – Heaven’s Radio. In the ’80’s Terry & his wife Kathy started spending their winters in Jamaica – and still do to this day – where he is considered by many locals to be the White King of Reggae. Terry loves to collaborate with musicians of all different styles and genres bringing them together into a symbiotic, distinctive blend with an almost hypnotic groove. He is joined for this gig by his old friend Peter Measroch (originally from South Africa, now living in Montreal) on keyboards & tabla and Salah Adem (originally from Eritrea now living in Ottawa) on African percussion. Terry on vocals, guitar and harmonica.  Come and find out what Blues/Reggae/African fusion sounds like!
A Jamaican/African dinner special will be featured on the menu for this night or choose from the menu!
Advance reservations strongly recommended.
